Be a lifeline to families this winter
We did it
On 3rd January 2022 we successfully raised £17,016 ( + est. £1374.25 Gift Aid ) with 168 supporters in 42 days

Many families can't afford the rising costs of utilities and food. You can be a lifeline to help them get through the winter.

What a great cause! It can be all too easy to forget people who are vulnerable :o( Sometimes we need a little reminder. Happy to contribute in my small way :o) xx

Good cause. We all take Christmas for granted but for many it is the hardest time of year. Hopefully we can raise a lot of money to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

I want to help people in crisis so that they know they have others thinking of them and wishing them well

I have been in the situation that some of these families in need are facing. My kids thought the candles and blankets on the floor were something exciting for xmas, but it was because we had no electricity. I'm glad that I can now give a little to help others.

WE HAVE WORKED THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC IN HEALTH AND EDUCATION, CONTRACTING COVID AS A DIRECT RESULT BUT FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO CARRY ON. UNLIKE THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT, NEITHER WE, NOR OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, HAVE PROFITED FROM THE PANDEMIC. NOR HAVE WE SOUGHT TO MAKE THE LIVES OF THE MOST VULNERABLE PERILOUS. WE MUST SET AN EXAMPLE TO THOSE WITH NO COMPASSION OR MORAL COMPASS AND CONTINUE TO HELP WHERE OUR GOVERNMENT DISAPPOINTS. MERRY CHRISTMASTO ALL AT TURN2US AND THE MANY, MANY PEOPLE THEY HAVE HELPED AND CONTINUE TO HELP.

Don’t sneer at the man who is down today Unless you have felt the blow That caused his fall or felt the shame That only the fallen know You may be strong,but still the blows That.we’re his,if dealt to you In the selfsame way at the selfsame time Might cause you to stagger,too.

I feel it's my social duty to help others less fortunate than myself. This year will be especially difficult with huge hikes in fuel costs and the people that have will no longer have the extra universal credit payments will really struggle. Charity begins ant home and every little helps
